Bride Wars (2009)
Directed by Gary Winick. Kate Hudson must have been born with a four-leaf clover up her ass because all she makes are horrible fucking movies and it seems like a new one shows up every month.
I've resolved myself to seeing every new comedy released but I may have to stop because this one was so far out of my wheelhouse I don't know what I was thinking. Though wait just a minute -- none of the stench from this shit pile is my fault. It's not because it's not my kind of movie. This fails to establish itself as farce. We neither get behind it as believable, nor relax and enjoy it as ridiculous. Thus, we can't even love to hate these hateful characters. We can only hate them.
This is both misogynistic in its portrayal of brides and whatever the opposite of misogynistic is in its portrayal of how brides treat their betrothed. Not that I'm not misogynistic, I'm just bringing you the news. Speaking of which, why does Hollywood insist on trying to convince me that Kate Hudson is hot? She's piggy.
